    Unable to remove LastResort font

    Hello, I installed Last Resort font, because I thought it supported some Unicode symbols that weren't supported, but when I saw that it's not more than a fallback font I tried to remove it. However, I could not find the font file. I installed it with Font Viewer, the standard app. I tried to find it in /usr/share/fonts, in /usr/local/share/fonts, ~/.fonts, and when I couldn't find it, I searched the whole / for anything that's got .ttf in it. In Font Viewer, Web and Character Map it is showing, but when I open Font Manager (a third party app) it isn't. Then I tried to restart computer as my "last resort", but that didn't work either.

    I prefer "ordinary mojibake" so I would really like to remove this font. Thanks in advance.

    how do you know the font is still installed? can't you just NOT use it? if it's there it isn't hurting anything and it probably only kilobytes in size. lol

    Did you even read my post?
    I reckon the font's got to load up from somewhere and that somewhere seems as if it was nowhere. Let's say that I just find it interesting that I see a font I cannot locate on my hard disk. How does that sound? Come on, I'm quite sure I didn't come to brag about my "font-wounds". EDIT: "Ordinary mojibake" statement was sarcastic. So was the "last resort".
